Braid: Kenney will resign leadership eventually, but doesn't intend to leave

Calgary Herald: 'Kenney’s effort to stay on is sure to draw bitter opposition from his opponents in caucus and beyond.

'Technically, Kenney has a case. He wasn’t actually defeated. He can argue that his resignation as party leader is voluntary and, like Klein, he gets to decide the timing.

'Kenney announced his intention to resign in a dramatic way, first saying he had a majority but suddenly adding: “It is clearly not adequate support to carry on as leader . . . I truly believe we need to move forward together, we need to put the past behind us.”

'The small gathering of his strongest loyalists, an invited group that didn’t include many UCP ministers and MLAs, was shocked both by the result and the resignation promise.'
